    Mutrah

    Mutrah, Muscat, Oman

    1 review

    Charming seaside fishing town with a decent souq. A little disappointing for its newness but the proximity to the surrounding hillsides and the ocean give it charm.

    Land of Frankincense

    Salalah Oman

    1 review

    Some of the most impressive ruins of the once hustling and bustling seaport that the lucrative frankincense trade built are found in Salalah's Al Balid, Land of Frankincense Museum. Ibn Battuta, the Arab version of Marco Polo, hung his hat here for a spell before moving on to the far east and while I'm not too hot on museums this ...

    2 reviews

    Billed as the world's most expensive perfume, Amourage is a homegrown Omani fragrance company offering scents for both men and women. Runs $300+ for 100ml. Definitely pricey but distinctive and inspired by local ingredients.

    Mutrah Fish Market

    Mutrah, Muscat, Oman

    1 review

    A must see in Mutrah. Similar to other fish markets but a nice spot for people watching and photos. Tourists are tolerated but don't feel particularly welcome. Try not to get in the way of business.

    Mutrah Fort

    Provides a nice backdrop to the corniche. More atmosphere than a sight to visit, but it is possible to hike to the top to get views of the bay.

    One of the few shops in the Mutrah souq selling unique items. It will require some searching but this is a good place for something distinctive.

    Al Hamar

    Al Hamar (near Hamar), Nizwa, Oman

    Attractive village on the way to Jebel Shams from Nizwa. The historic mud structures here are particularly picturesque. There are nice views of them from the hills above.

    Wadi Ghul

    Bottom of Jebel Shams gorge, Nizwa, Oman

    1 review

    More a view than a sight. Nice enough but inaccessible even if mentioned in tourist brochures. Really the same thing as Jebel Shams even if they drive you an extra 100m to get a view of it.

    Muscat Gate

    Old Muscat, Muscat, Oman

    1 review

    The gate itself isn't very impressive and is new construction. If you climb to the top, you'll get good views of the surrounding scenery.

    Bait Al Barranda

    1 review

    Unfortunately, this restored home and Muscat history museum isn't really that interesting. If you have plenty of time and are a history junky, go for it. Otherwise, it feels a little too amateur to really hold interest or inspire. Kids might like the dinosaur model.

    Plaza Premium Lounge

    Bare bones private lounge. Not really worth the fee to enter unless you have a pass. Offers showers, free wi-fi, the smell of cigarettes, and a small Indian buffet.
